Eek! Movies Mini Album by Tazhiana Gordon

Hey friends! Tazhi here with a fun project to help you document this spooky season! While I’ve never dressed up for Halloween or really celebrated the holiday, one of my favorite October traditions is 31 Days of Horror films.

I almost never get through all 31 days but it is so much fun to try and for my project this month, I thought I would document some of my favorites over the last few years. Some are classics, some are newer films, but they are definitely all films I go back to over and over again.

For the base of my album, I used a Paige Evans Pumpkin cut file that I bought from the Silhouette store and I cut both the detailed pumpkin image for my front and back cover as well as the outline of the pumpkin for my album pages. I used sheets from the Pebbles Spoooky line for this step and my electronic die cutting machine. My photos are printed 2×3 and I found these just by searching the internet for movie posters.

To assemble, I used the same formula for each page: I started with a pumpkin page, added my photo which I matted down on a scrap of cardstock, then used pieces from the Icon Ephemera, Phrase Ephemera, Spider Puffy Stickers, or the Puffy Stickers. I also included some of the wall spiders on a few of my pages because I liked how big and sparkly they were and I added scraps of pleated ribbon throughout for an extra texture. Because dimension is life, there is a ton of foam tape throughout.

For my cover page of the mini album, I first layered on some of the wall spiders, then added a little ghost friend which I layered some die cuts over and the gold alphabet that comes in the collection to make my title “Eek! Movies” which just seemed liked the perfect one for this mini album.

I was having way too much fun creating this so I made a few tag pages just to pop in for interest and added dimension. For these, I used some 3×4 cut aparts from one of the papers and then embellished them with the same supplies lying on my desk.

Finally, I punched holes in every page, threaded a binder ring through them, and tied on some ribbon to the ring for extra pizazz and that’s the whole mini album made! I hope you enjoyed this post and it inspired you to document your favorite spooky memories in a mini album!
